This is a must stop and try place. For appetizers we had Anticucho (beef heart), fried Yuca, ceviche de pescado, and papa la Huaincaina. All delicious. Then a must is the Lomo Saltado and Chupe de Camarón (shrimp soup, Peruvian style). Anything you get is...More

My eyes were bigger than my belly! The ceviche sampler has 4 different varieties of ceviche that were delicious. But the piece de resistance was the Parihuela Salvaje! Try it, you won't regret it... think creamy, smoky seafood soup.
